3 fires in one night; heating issues spark 2

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Residents across Harris County Saturday night woke up to the smell of smoke and then discovered their homes were on fire.

Within a matter of hours, there were three different fires and two were linked to heating issues.

The first fire, linked to a space heater was at a house in northeast Houston on Pardee near Eastland.

The home owner was able to make it out alive, but was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

And then, a faulty furnace led to a fire in southwest Houston on South Gessner at Town Park.

Crews are in north Harris County at an apartment fire on Aldine West Field and Woodcreek.
